Well you guys, I finished my MAPP Foster Care/Adoption Classes….One step closer to being a mommy. I will be doing my homestudy soon and then I can be licensed.

I am beginning to prepare for my future and I am SOOOOOO excited!!!!! My apartment complex is going to let me upgrade to a larger apartment which is great, so I don’t have to break my lease to move to a larger place. Isn’t God good! I am also beginning to purchase items for the new kiddos. I will be fostering GIRLS ages 0-6 y/o so I will have to have a wide variety of items for this age range. Not trying to have every little thing they need before they get here, but just something to get them started, in case I get an emergency placement.

Some have expressed interest in helping out, by donating items, so I have included my shopping list of things needed below, for anyone who is interested.

These kids come with with little to nothing, so anything that you can donate, including PRE-LOVED (used) items, would be most appreciated. I don’t mind hand me downs…as a matter of fact – I wholeheartedly welcome them!!!!


Thank you in advanced!!!! – Email me if you would like to donate – ybunited@yahoo.com
